Department of Land Management
Conservation Awareness Poster Contest
The Trempealeau County Department of Land Management held the Conservation Awareness Poster Contest on January 14th, 2020 in the Courthouse, in Whitehall, W. The Poster Contest was sponsored by the Trempealeau County Environment and Land Use Committee. Posters were entered in all five divisions - Primary, Elementary, Middle, Junior, and Senior. They were judged on their relevance to the theme “Where Would we BEE Without Pollinators?” Additional judging criteria included: Originality of design and concept, neatness, easy to read, if it conveys a positive conservation message, and if it shows a good understanding of the conservation concept.
Serving as judges were: Kathy Zeglin, Vice-Chair of the Trempealeau County Environment and Land Use Committee, Tess Johnson, Trempealeau County Department of Land Management Conservation Engineering Specialist, and Michelle Rose, Trempealeau County UW-Extension.
Nearly 100 poster entries were received this year. (See below list of winners...)
The first place winners in each of the five divisions that were entered move on to the Western Area Poster Contest to be held in Viroqua, WI - January 27, 2020.
